    Pros: size, appearance, washing options, finger faucet, end of cycle signal,25 cycles

    Summary: I purchased this washer at Home Depot on February 25, 2004. A washer I had purchased just one year prior to this one had died on me one week after its warranty was up. When we shopped this time around we specifically looked at Maytag. We went on ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: NONE
    Cons: Low quality, poor reliability, noisy, doesn't clean good, transmission belt and leak problems.

    Summary: Not a real MAYTAG. When looking for parts for this piece of junk, Amana parts are interchangeable. I bought this washing machine because it was a Maytag and was much better price at HOME DEPOT than a comparable model at SEARS. My mother-in-law's MAYTAG ... read more

    Oct 10, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: NONE
    Cons: Breaks down immediately after warranty expires;pulls apart towels and bath mats.

    Summary: We bought Maytag because it always had a great reputation, so I did not bother researching. Within days of the original warranty expiration, the bearings went out under the tub. The bill was several hundred dollars. The repairman acknowledged that Maytag ... read more

    Feb 24, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: None
    Cons: JUNK

    Summary: We purchased a SAV515 Maytag from Home Depot about 2 years ago. We replaced an old 20 year old Whirlpool washer and dryer as a preventative measure thinking it would be better than to wait until the old machines died. Were we ever wrong, I wish we had ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Attractive, large capacity, finger faucet
    Cons: noisy, stinks and clothes come out full of lint

    Summary: I bought the SAV405DAWW model in February 2004, however I don't see it anywhere anymore. This must be its update. However this machine was so bad. In it's first year the lid latch broke so the washer would stop and I would have to hit it to get it ... read more

    Pros: It looked nice. If you wanted a machine to look at.
    Cons: Loud within 6 months, clothes were full of lint, smelly.

    Summary: I bought mine in the winter of 2004 from The Home Depot. I had it taken to the scrap metal yard. I needed to get it out of sight and out of mind. I was so angry over the whole fiasco. Bottom line is i am out the $499 for the washer that kept breaking ... read more

    Summary: Bought in February 2004 for $449.00 from Home Depot. Had to have repair man replace Tube Seal Bearings in May 2005 covered by warranty after much debate with several layers of Maytag customer service. July 2005 belt burned up off washer and filled ... read more

    Pros: second rinse, finger faucet
    Cons: Too many repairs, too many issues - very poor quality, shame on Maytag

    Pros: NONE
    Cons: breaks constantly, doesn't clean clothes (even simple dirt stains)

    Summary: Piece of junk, breaks constantly, does not wash clothes. When it was still under warranty it broke 2 times and even when it was in full working order it doesn't really clean clothes. You might as well fill your bathtub with soapy water and thrown your ... read more

    Pros: Saves a lot of energy when it isn't working.
    Cons: Too heavy to be a paper weight.

    Summary: This washer works when it wants. Sometimes it rinses, other times it doesn't. Unplug it and ignore it for the day plug it back in and it works. The extra rinse feature doesn't work - ever. After I bought it two co-workers immediately told me I made a ... read more

    Pros: Stainless tub, quiet
    Cons: Transmission gone in 2 1/2 years

    Summary: We purchased the SAV515DE from Home Depot 6/2006 and thought we were getting a good machine. It worked fine until 1/2007 and it started leaking water and throwing black stuff on our clothes. Of course we are out of warranty for labor but hopefully the ... read more

    Pros: Looks nice.
    Cons: Prone to costly, repeated failure in the motor and transmission.

    Summary: We received this washing machine as part of a set, together with a matching Maytag dryer, when we bought our house in August, 2003. Since then, the transmission and motor failed in early 2005. Now, in January of 2006, it appears the motor and/or ... read more
